Inventory Management (backdated)


We are searching for a solution in the inventory process:

We want to confirm some count tasks in sap byd in the past. the customer made his inventory 2 weeks ago and wants to upload the inventory data today into the system for the date he did the inventory. after the counting, the customer had a lot of good movments. The problem is, that the good movements arn't considered if we import the good counting into the system.


Stock at the inventory day: 10

Sell two products two days after the inventory and new stock: 8

Upload inventory: 10 (with reference day - inventory day)

Expected Inventory: 8

Wrong Value in the System: 10

Does someone know a solution for that process?

Thank you.

    Hi Stefan,

    as far as I know it is not possible to count for a specific date. As soon as the count tasks are approved they will adjust the actual stock. The assumption is that during counting of a logistics area no warehouse operations should happe for this logistics area, until the count is approved.

    Best regards,

      Hi Stefan

      Thank you for the answer. We got the same answer from SAP, after sending a Helpdesk request. (Works as designed)

      We are looking for an other solution, but it seams to be impossible.

      Best Regards

      Hi Lena

      I am sorry but I didn't found any solution till today. Our Customer should do his inventory step by step in future, that the warehouse just has to close partialy. But I still hope that SAP provides a solution for that case.

      Best Regards,
